On their new studio album, Anatomy, Virginia rockers Pale Blue Dot have channeled only the best in Americana and grunge rock to craft a solid, nine-track full-length packed with raw soul and accessible familiarity.
Fans of everything from The National to Pearl Jam will find moments of comfort in Anatomy as frontman Tony LaRocco’s vocals soar over driving rock efforts nuanced with dynamic instrumentals and a variety of directions that keep the album interesting. A track like “Only Love,” which features horns and a perfect guest vocal accompaniment, is a great example of what this band is capable of in terms of pushing their own boundaries and expanding their sound — something they’ve done wonderfully since 2016’s Telescopes EP.
Pale Blue Dot has a number of shows in the South and around the East Coast throughout the summer. If you’re in the area, you can check out their itinerary here.
